    Winemaker's Notes:

    Larner was my first. My first vineyard designated wine, my first fruit contract, my first Syrah. I'm happy to say that we still get along. Heck, it just keeps getting better. This is my 4th Larner Syrah, and it's got everything I love most about the vineyard: huge fruit, balanced minearlity and fantastic spice. Lush aromas of cherry pie, jasmine, lava rock and fresh tarragon introduce a full bodied but nimble palate that carries seamlessly from grilled pineapple, smashed strawberry and beets to licorice, bark, clove and warm tar. Without question a worthy tribute to a lasting relationship. (DRINK NOW: decant 2+ hours, CELLAR: 8-10 years)

    Critical Acclaim:

    Complex, with ripe, juicy plum, blackberry and wild berry fruit that touches on jam without being heavy. Full-bodied and spicy, ending with a persistent finish anchored by minerality. Drink now through 2018.
